CRANLEIGH SCHOOLS FOR THOUGHT?

CRANLEIGH NEW TOWN HERE WE COME? 

CRANLEIGH CHURCH OF ENGLAND PRIMARY SCHOOL AND CRANLEIGH INFANTS’ SCHOOL SITES COULD SOON BE PART OF  THE FIRST PHASE OF THE REDEVELOPMENT OF THE CENTRE OF CRANLEIGH WITH 98 NEW HOMES.

THERE ARE NO PLANS HERE FOR THE PROVISION OF TWO REPLACEMENT NEW SCHOOLS ADJACENT TO GLEBELANDS SCHOOL, FOLLOWING DEMOLITION OF THE EXISTING FACILITIES AS SURREY COUNTY COUNCIL’S RE-DEVELOPMENT PLANS ARE  DEPENDENT UPON THE SALE OF THE LAND SHOWN HERE FOR HOUSING. The plans for the two new schools on green playing fields will follow…watch this space – you heard it here first.

The existing  site of two Cranleigh schools fronting onto Parsonage Road,  and Church Lane, are behind the High Street and Cranleigh Post Office. The development plans include: 98 homes – comprising some three storey town houses, one and two bedroom apartments, 2/3 and 4 bedroom houses and 220 car parking spaces

Access to Site A  of the proposed development (Cranleigh C of E School)  would be from Cranleigh High Street’s  junction with Rowland Road (opposite Sainsbury’s) into Parsonage Road. The Access to Site B (Cranleigh Infants School/Nursery and After School Club from Dewlands Lane off Ewhurst Road  near the junction with St Nicolas Avenue which serves the St Cuthbert Mayne School. The existing  access to the Infants School from the High Street into (Church Lane would be closed to vehicular traffic.)

Access from the new schools to be built on playing fields behind Cranleigh Sports & Social Club adjacent to Glebelands School , the existing housing on the Wyphurst Estate and the new housing will access onto Parsonage Road and Canleigh High Street!

In other words… busy, busy busy – making any deliveries/collections to nearby shops and offices almost impossible at certain times of the day!

 This is not yet a planning application but a Screening Opinion. This  is required to determine whether an EIA – an Environmental Impact Assessment is required and then a planning application will follow.
This will undoubtedly keep the Cranleigh Parish Council busy for the next few months and some of the other wannabe developers!
Don’t forget if you have a view or comment on this proposed development contact WW on mailto:contact@waverleyweb.org We look forward to hearing from you.
